Innovative packaging and processing solutions

02 May 2016

Multivac UK recently opened the doors to its newly refurbished building, which now includes a purpose-built new product development area created to help cut product development times and enable the creation of more innovative packaging solutions. 

At an opening event, John Lakin, MD at Multivac UK, offered visitors the opportunity to look around the new facilities to see the processing equipment on offer, including mixers, fillers, grinders, bowl choppers, smokehouses and cookers/chilling rooms.

Multivac used the event to show how it can offer its customers a competitive advantage, using a demonstration of the production of sausages, burgers and meatballs using just two pieces of equipment with rapid product change over times.

Visitors were also shown how Multivac can automate a packaging line, reducing labour costs and increasing efficiency and also had an opportunity to taste and experience products cooked using its Mylar COOK range and demonstrating its sous vide capabilities. The company also demonstrated its ability to deliver turnkey lines. It can offer complete line integration with full project management capabilities, including CE-marking. It demonstrated a line with a thermoformer, checkweigher, metal detector, labeller and pack stacker all controlled through an HMI screen on the thermoformer. This highlighted to visitors how the company is able to provide a common platform for all machines, reducing errors and down time, enabling fast line changes through a very low investment requirement.
